Tip: Plan your project in detail on paper first. Design it to scale, on graphing paper and in pencil so that you can redesign and correct mistakes easily.

Get Creative With Sound

Our artistic drives and instincts often extend past paint, canvas, paper, and charcoal. As artists, it is our job to expose ourselves to all forms of creative expression in order to expand our creative lives. Challenge your creativity by taking on an artistic experiment that stimulates more than your vision sense: let's add a new sensory dimension by exploring sound in art.

Imagine being a kid again, and you have a huge toy box filled with every toy you ever wanted. That is a wonderful way to feel when you walk into your studio to create, so let's cultivate a studio full of tools that are fun to use.
